I wouldn't use it. I think is like a gas station generic brand. Your better off using redline, mobil 1, valvoline, or neo. You can buy any of these online. And they sell mobil and valvoline at auto parts stores. Check your manual but I think it's most important that its a GL-5 rated oil.

All depends on the kind of synthetic. Like what's in it. Mobil1, I think, is to slick for the tranny, but good for the rear diff. I have redline lightweight shockproof in my tranny and you can call any race shop, not parts store they won't have it, and they should be able to get it for you no prob. just my .02

Default I had the same issue...

I went looking for transmission fluid last week, and all I could find in 75W-90 was Costal.

A quick look at the bottle showed that it is acceptable in LSD units for "top-off" only.

I've heard different things about whether our LSD units are sealed or not (and hence if they need the friction modifiers or not), but decided that it wasn't worth the risk.

I also agree that it is a "generic" brand of unknown quality and composition.
